2023: Tinubu has done well for Igbos, deserves support — Gbajabiamila

Speaker of the House of Representatives ,Rep Femi Gbajabiamila says the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) , Sen. Bola Tinubu will serve the interests of all parts of Nigeria if elected in 2023.

Gbajabiamila made the statement on Saturday in Lagos, while speaking at the Surulere Constituency 2 APC Town Hall meeting.

He said the APC presidential candidate was passionate about the development of Nigeria, adding he would care for all the peoples of the country, if elected.

“One thing I can assure all Nigerians is that when Asiwaju Bola Tinubu becomes the president of this country, he will be the president for all.

“He will care for the Yoruba people, he will care the South South , he will care for the Igbos, he will care for the Nupes and the northerners.

“He is the only candidate that has proven himself well.He has the capacity and will deliver”, Gbajabiamila said.

The Speaker particularly appealed to Igbos to invest their votes in Tinubu to take the country to greater heights .

He said it was unfair not to vote for Tinubu, simply because he is not from the South East or any other region apart from his.

Gbajabiamila said Tinubu had done well for the Igbos and urged people from the region to give him all the support to lead the country.

“To our brothers and sisters from the South East, has Asiwaju done anything to offend anybody in the South East? Has he done anything wrong?

“Tell me one state in Nigeria where you have a non -indigene in the cabinet. I can tell you ,the only state where that happens is Lagos state.

“The Director-General of Budget Office in Nigeria, one of the highest positions in Nigeria, what is his name? Ben Akabueze. Is he from from Lagos? No ,he is from the South East and Asiwaju put him there.

” He determines the budget.Whatever any money any agency or department is looking for, it must come Akabueze’s table.He determines whether to give or not to give.That is a man from the South East, put there by Asiwaju Tinubu.

“And I can give you many more names. So, why will a man that has done much for the Igbos now come to you for votes ,and you tell him he has not done bad ,he has done well ,but because he is not from the South East ,we have somebody from the South East to vote for. I think that is not the way to go,” he said .

Gbajabiamila said the 2023 election was about the progress of the country, and urged Nigerians to vote for competence rather than tribe or religion .

The Speaker said though he represents Surulere 1 Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives ,he was at the Surulere 2 APC Federal Constituency meeting to ensure victory for the party in the area.

He said it was regrettable that APC lost the constituency to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in 2015 and 2019, adding that it was time for APC to take back the area.

He urged party members to shun in-fighting and mobilise support for the victory of the party in the area, come 2023.

Speaking ,Mr Agboola Dabiri , a former  Commissioner for Youths and Sports in Lagos State, described APC as the party for Nigerians.

He urged the people of Surulere Constituency 2 to vote the party’s candidates.

Dabiri, chairman of an APC task force set up to deliver the constituency to the party, said voting APC in the area would mean delivery of democratic dividends to the people .

“You all know what the people of constituency 1 ,represented by the Speaker ,are enjoying .

“They are too numerous to mention.You too will enjoy the same and more if you vote our candidates to represent you at the House of Representatives.

“The PDP that is representing you now is not the best for you .You should do the right thing in 2023.”he said.

He said though Gbajabiamila represents Surulere 1 Federal Constituency, he had executed many projects in Surulere 2 .

Dabiri said the Speaker had installed streetlights in many streets in Itire- Ikate and Coker Aguda in Constituency 2 and had constructed many roads in the constituency.

He said it would be better for the people of the area if they have an APC Rep in 2023.

Mr Ahmed Apatira ,Chairman ,Itire- Ikate Local Council Development Area, commended Gbajabiamila for all his projects in Surulere 2 despite not representing the area.

He promised that the council and the party would do their best to deliver the area to APC in 2023.

Also speaking ,Mr Rasak Olalekan ,Chairman ,Coker -Aguda LCDA ,commended the Speaker for extending love to the people of constituency 2,saying the Speaker had demonstrated that he was a caring leader with his many projects in the constituency.

“PDP is rooted in Adamawa, we have three senators, seven out of eight members of the House of Representatives and we are ruling the state for the second term.

APC SUPPORT GROUPS RALLY ROUND PAUL CHUKWUMA

The members of the APC Support Groups family have thrown their weight behind a Frontline pillar of the All Progressives Congress in Anambra State, Sir Paul Chukwuma in the build up to the race for the Anambra State governorship election.
The Convener of the Amalgamated APC Support Groups Think Tank and leader of the Progressive Support Groups Forum, Dr. AK Peters made this declaration in Abuja on the heels of the fake news of the purported arrest and detaintion of Sir Paul Chukwuma by the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission ICPC.
In a release signed by Dr. AK Peters and Ustaz Bashir Yahaya, the Secretary of the Think Tank on Friday, the APC Support Groups Leaders condemned the fear and sheer desperation of failed and expired politicians who see Paul Chukwuma as a major threat to their political future.
The release reads in parts, ” Anambra State needs to be rescued from the clutches of bad governance and misrule of APGA and Sir Paul Chukwuma is right man for the job”.

Peters further stated that Paul Chukwuma is a grassroot man, a loyal party man, a motivator of the youths, a philanthropist, mobilizer, and a good Christian who has the fear of God and built the structure of the APC in Anambra State.
He emphasized that those who have suddenly realized that they have failed the people in the past are resorting to campaign of calumny and spreading fake news to smear the good name and character of the APC hopeful for the Anambra State governorship election.

The APC Support Groups have decided to drum support for only true party members like Sir Paul Chukwuma, the Statement said.

He called on all party members to work for him as he is the only person that has all it takes to defeat APGA and enthrone APC in the state.
